Our Leadership Mentoring Program consists of committed, professional bilingual mentors who meet with small groups of participants during school.
Overtime, our mentors not only become their leadership coach, by presenting imperative leadership skills through lessons, they create long-lasting relationships.
Bilingual Leadership Programs
For Elementary, Middle & Highschools
Leadership Mentor Coaches discuss a bilingual leadership lesson that is provided during each session. Some schools may have a mindfulness yoga session first that includes de-stressing and focusing techniques. The time commitment is for approximately one hour. Leadership Coaches share their guidance and wisdom with a Hispanic student, check in with students on how they are doing in their classes and may connect with parents to engage them in being a partner with the school. It is a family based program making it unique from other mentoring programs, and addresses the language barrier in education. Studies have shown that at risk students were successful in school when they had the support of a caring adult who showed interest in them. (Yoga sessions are only available if the school is able to provide the space).
It is an “in school” based program. Our Hispanic High School students receive information on applying for scholarships, writing the essay for the common application, navigating the FAFSA form, college tours to assist students in deciding on a college that is right for them, coordinated with leadership lessons on setting goals, decision making, time management, and achieving success.
The time commitment is for approximately ONE HOUR
What are my Dreams
Attitude is Everything
“It ended up being the best day of my week, every week. I think that I was supposed to be there to give to them, but they ended up giving to me and I am so grateful that I ended up volunteering.”
"Just being able to help someone brings joy to my life. Using my life as an example for them, allowing them to grow has really marked how I see the world as well as how I perceive myself and if I had the opportunity, I would gladly do it every year."
"The Passport to Education Bilingual Leadership Programs stand out among mentoring programs because of the focused bilingual leadership curriculum during the sessions. Middle school is a critical age for kids. They really develop into what kind of adults they are going to become”
